Lot Details

Mount size is 20 x 16 inches (50.8 x 40.6 cm)

Described as “Retro-Neo-Deco” in style, Herb Ritts' photographs have revolutionized both nude portraiture and fashion photography. In "Female Nude with Black Sand," Ritts modernizes the notion of the classical nude through his intense contemplation of light, texture and warmth. Ritts pays close attention to the female figure, as well as the brightly sunlit Hawaiian beach where this image was shot, to produce bold contrasts between the human form and the natural environment. Though his rich understanding of the body and its formal qualities, Ritts captures his subjects in an undeniably seductive manner that portrays them as both intimate and unattainable.
